We are currently witnessing a renaissance of the arts crafts movement and a return to making things by hand, with respect for materials and processes. As more and more people are seeing the merits of buying bespoke handmade products over cheap mass-produced generic alternatives, fashion is following suit with lots of indie designers choosing to carve out their niche through specialising in craft techniques. The pom pom tank top in the “hand-crafted” (#nophotoshop) collages was knitted by the wonderful Niu Yun and her brand Mad Hands.
